558 – “Where the telescope ends the microscope begins. Which of the two possess the larger field of vision? Choose. A bit of mold is a Pleiad of flowers; a nebula is an anthill of stars.”

–Victor Hugo

459 – “Nonsense wakes up the brain cells. And it helps develop a sense of humor, which is awfully important in this day and age. Humor has a tremendous place in this sordid world. It’s more than just a matter of laughing. If you can see things out of whack, then you can see how things can be in whack.”

–Dr Seuss


441 – “The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”

–Hector (played by Richard Griffiths) in The History Boys (2006)
